Nikki Haley on Iran: 'We must not be silent'

Nikki Haley on Iran: 'We must not be silent'

The freedoms that are enshrined in the United Nations charter are under attack in Iran. "We all know that's complete nonsense", she scoffed. The demonstrations are completely spontaneous. "This is the precise picture of a long oppressed peoples rising up against their dictators".

In a formal statement from the former S.C. governor, Haley compared protesting Iranians to others living under "oppressive governments" in Cuba, North Korea and Venezuela. The people of Iran are crying out for freedom.

Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon on Tuesday called out the UN for "hypocrisy" in the face of the Iranian protests.

"North Korea can talk to anyone they want, but the U.S.is not going to recognise it or acknowledge it until they agree to ban the nuclear weapons that they have", she said. "All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause". She said they must seize the moment instead of letting the regime overcome popular opposition, as it has in the past.

Chun Yung-woo, a former South Korean national security adviser, said Seoul should have taken more time before reacting to Kim's comments. "We must not make that mistake again". She said the United States would be seeking emergency sessions of the UN Security Council and the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Commission in the coming days. We must not be silent.

Kim and Trump have exchanged fiery barbs in the a year ago and the US president has warned that the United States would have no choice but to "totally destroy" North Korea if forced to defend itself or its allies. "[President Donald Trump] is willing to go to great lengths to stop all funding from Pakistan as they continue to harbor and support terrorism", Haley said.

"North Korea's participation in the Winter Games will be a good opportunity to showcase the national pride and we wish the Games will be a success".

Kim said in a New Year's Day speech on Monday he would consider sending a delegation to the Olympics.

North Korea, which regularly threatens to destroy the United States, South Korea and Japan, tested its most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile in November, which it said was capable of delivering a warhead to anywhere in the United States. Nauert said she was not aware if the matter had been discussed in advance of the South Korean response.
